Making Your Resolutions Count

With New Year’s around the corner, lists of resolutions for 2014 are being compiled by one and all.

We even made a game for the show all about the most popular resolutions and have guest speakers on the schedule with suggestions about how to keep them.

Isn’t that always the problem? We start out with the best intentions for the New Year and then a few weeks into the year, they have fallen by the wayside. So what are the best things we can do now to get what we want in 2014?

Moving into January, we are like the Roman god Janus looking forward and backward. It’s a good time to check in on the year 2013 to list our top accomplishments for the year and express our gratitude.

We are also formulating our dreams for the coming year. As you make a list, you have a greater chance of sticking with the ideas that really mean something to you. So before you put something on your list, ask yourself where you want to place your focus? Why is it important to you? How do you want to feel when you achieve it?

Enhance your dream projects by visualizing what they will be, how they will unfold, and see yourself in relationship to them. Take an inventory of what you already have and what you will need to acquire in order to accomplish your goals. And round out your thoughts on your ideas by noting the steps that will be required in the form of a plan.

Help yourself stay focused by writing a list of affirmations and afformations to read or recite daily throughout 2014 until you have achieved your goals.

If you take the time to really think through the resolutions on your list, you will have a much better chance of getting them and as New Year’s dawns, you will already be well on your way.

Happy Holidays and much success with your resolutions for 2014!
